About the Southern Research Station

Southern forests are home to some of the most diverse ecosystems in North America. They’re also vital to the U.S. timber economy – almost a third of the nation’s forested lands and net annual timber volume growth are found in the 13 southern states.

SRS research is focused on delivering scientific products and tools that address the diverse needs of our stakeholders and partners. The 2022 Research Highlights gallery showcases the state of the science from across the SRS over the past year. The Research Highlights are organized by three of the strategic goals that guide our agency’s research programs: Sustain Our Nation’s Forests and Grasslands, Deliver Benefits to the Public, and Apply Knowledge Globally.

On this page you will find updates on our forest inventory and monitoring, forest threats, forest values, forest watershed science, and forest restoration and management research. Each summary includes new publications, contact information, and resources to learn more.
